Reducing or eliminating the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face is often the priority of many aesthetic and cosmetic treatment plans. There are many treatments and procedures available to help achieve these goals. However, many people prefer to avoid surgery or receiving injectable treatments, and although they are very safe, some especially want to avoid the use of neurotoxins.
These injectable treatments work by restoring lost volume below your skin by injecting molecules like those made in your body or by blocking contractions in the muscles causing the lines and wrinkles with the use of a safe amount of a neurotoxin.
ThermiRase® can help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles on your forehead, especially around your eyebrows, without using injectables or any needles. This non-invasive treatment uses radiofrequency (RF) energy instead of an injected neurotoxin to block specific facial muscles from contracting.
After the area is treated with topical anesthesia, Dr. Salzman will glide a pen-like probe across your skin over specific nerves in your face. This probe emits focused RF energy to interrupt the signals sent in the nerve to, like the neurotoxin used in some injectable treatments, prevent the muscle contractions that cause fine lines and wrinkles.
Although this treatment does little to restore lost volume on the face, it is very effective at reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the forehead. There is no downtime or recovery afterward.
And though some swelling or bruising may occur, these will subside within a few days after the treatment. Protecting the area from direct or harsh sunlight is important to achieve the best results.
There are many options to address your aesthetic goals, and specific treatments or combinations may work better than others for your specific skin tone or type. Dr. Salzman at Salzman Cosmetic Surgery and Spa will work with you to develop the perfect customize aesthetic treatment plan to help you achieve all your aesthetic goals.
